New England Center for Circus Arts is celebrating World Circus Day in a big fashion as is fit for the school that is now the most comprehensive circus training destination in the United States.

Saturday, April 16 is the seventh annual World Circus Day. Established in 2010 by H. S. H. Princess Stephanie of Monaco to publicize the role of circus as part of our shared cultural heritage, World Circus Day is held each year on the third Saturday of April.

Her goal is to promote and preserve circus arts and culture worldwide. Hundreds of circuses around the world participate in the international celebration of all things circus, and planners anticipate celebrations in 50 nations, as well as in Brattleboro.

With this in mind, NECCA is offering events for participants, watchers and supporters.
